Race Report from Triathlon held 18th December 2016

by Alan Kaplan

Morning rain and cold wintery weather greeted 14 triathletes competing in the sprint distance , 7 kids over varying distances and 4 triathletes competing in Olympic distance.
In the sprint distance Craig Pager won the race but had to work hard on the bike to catch the ever improving Brett Yudelman  and the old stalwart Roy Cohen (making his comeback). Roy managed to hang on to second place from a fast finishing Alan Kaplan who passed Brett on the run.
Warm welcome to new faces Jeremy Brose and David Weinstein.
In the kids middle distance Braydon Bloch took out the boys race  and Jasmine Barea the girls race in very good times
Riley Pager won the short kids race .

In the Olympic distance the Rifkin's  raced against each other. Michael won the race from brother Daniel with father Julian in 3rd.
Julian however qualified together with the evergreen Michael Besser for next years Maccabiah in Israel.
The brothers times are not too far behind qualifying hopefully in the new year.
Good fun had by all.
Next race 29 January 2017
